Hello! Nice to meet you!
I am the oldest of three in my family. The wonderful people I share my life with are: my husband (Anthony) my mom (Lori), my dad (Todd), my sister (Karli), my brother (Brady). I was born in a small town in North Dakota and lived there until I was in third grade when my family moved to Eagle Lake. I attended Eagle Lake Elementary for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade, then went to Franklin Elementary for 6th grade and East Junior High and High School. After high school I didn't go too far as I attended Minnesota State University right here in Mankato. I graduated college in the spring of 2014 and got my first teaching job as a first grade teacher at Washington Elementary.
This will be my fourth year teaching and I am so excited to be HOME. Eagle Lake is the school I went to and the town I grew up in. In fact, I am in the SAME classroom I was in in 4th grade.
I am currently in the third year of my masters program through Minnesota State University and am pursuing a Masters in Reading.
My husband and I are expecting our first baby in December, and we couldn't be more excited!
In my free time I love to do projects and crafts, go running, watch movies, read books, attend my brothers Southwest Minnesota State baseball games, and spend time with my family and friends. Last summer, we got a new puppy (Opal) and we love playing with her!
